Data Centre

The GlobalSurg Data Centre aims to give our collaborators better access to the datasets collected during our international cohort studies. The centre is an online home for the collection, analysis, visulation and reporting of data in our Global Surgery projects. We hope to share data to establish best practice, and ultimately, to improve outcomes for surgical patients worldwide

At the GlobalSurg Data Centre you can see real time updates on data entry from our current study – at the moment GlobalSurg 3 is collecting data on patients undergoing surgery for breast, gastric and colon cancers. Visit the GS3 in numbers page to see live updates on how many countries are registered to take part, how many teams are actively collecting data and how many patient records have been entered into the study.

As we complete cohort studies we will add applications that allow visualisation and interaction with the complete dataset (please be reassured that we not allow access to patient or hospital level data) – you can see an example of this by visiting the GS2 data explorer. Using this new application, any variable can be compared with any other variable – click the ‘Data’ tab to begin exploring!

We will also be blogging here about all things data – tips on data analysis, how to best present data – if you have a data-related topic you like us to cover, let us know by contacting us!

Education Centre

The GlobalSurg Education Centre provides online training and resources relevant to global surgical research. At the centre you will find open access training materials for our cohort studies and video tutorials on how to use REDCap – our online data entry platform.

We will also be adding modules related to undertaking research wherever you are in the world – these will be open access and freely available to all!
